This is my frist time participating in Wednesday Stamper. The theme for this week is Gothic Arch. (they have a template you can download for the arch) It's also my first Gothic Arch. It is a fun shape, and this card (I cut mine on a fold so it's a card, not just a flat thingie) fits in a normal envelope. I love different things that still fit in my standard envelopes!
All my stamping is on a sheet of patern paper. It came in one of those huge slab things. (which I promise not to buy any of this year, as I never use more than a few sheets out of them) I colored with colored pencils. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig a lot on this card. See the border, it's just a teensy little stamp, over and over, and over, and over. Then of course I used it to get my fish to kiss. (I really like those fish to kiss) I figured they could kiss under the cherries as Christmastime is over now. Then, this is my favorite part, the "love"; I don't have a "love" stamp. I mean not in this cute font at least. But I have a huge background stamp that says: "I love tea..." and so on, all sorts of stuff. So I inked just the "love" with a marker and then used my stamp-a-ma-jij for placement and got it to stamp just that word! Now this stamp is huge, it is a whole background stamp, so I think it was pretty clever to get just one word from it. :) All these images are by justjohanna.
